A Challenge of a Challenge!

The new challenge at Guylou's Inimitability is up! This new Color + Anything but a Card challenge was a bit of a challenge for me since I hardly ever make things that aren't cards. Plus, the colors are bright, summery, fun colors that I probably wouldn't think to put together when I color. Here's the palette:

After going back and forth between a bookmark and a corner bookmark, I finally decided to make a paperclip bookmark using the digi Marysse.

Ready for the hint that will help keep you from making one of my mistakes? Don't make the top super huge like I did! I'm not sure how this will hold up to all the reading I do. A smaller top won't stick out of the book so far and will have less of a chance to bend.

You have until 10 p.m. on Aug 18 to link your project at Guylou's Inimitability. I can't wait to see what you make! Don't forget to check out the rest of the DT's projects and GDT member Kurlygirl's awesome creation!

Challenges: Stamp Something - Digi Day, Raise the Bar - Anything Goes, Cardmadfairy's Digi Days Challenge - Summer Holidays, Crafty Purple Frog Challenges - Anything but a Card, Moving Along with the Times - Don't be Square


  1. I am sure you read about my mistake! I should have posted the pic of it...what a runny mess. Anyway, I love your bookmark. I love the doodled stitches and how you used the colors. I found this one to be a serious challenge, too! It ended up being fun, but man, it taxed my brain!!!!

  2. VERY cute = and useful too! Love the little bookmark with the cute, cute image.

  3. Sweet Trina and I could use one of those!! I like the bright and cheerful colors! Hugz, Colleen
